Parliament does not fear salary reductions

10 March 2014, 22:11 William Korir

Nairobi - Parliament is ready to take part in reducing its salaries just like other government agencies, majority leader Aden Duale has said.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, deputy president William Ruto and the cabinet kicked off the salary reduction clamour by taking on various reductions to their pay last week.

They were then followed by various leaders in key government agencies who also agreed to take pay cuts.

And with the ongoing conference on wage bill reduction taking place and high earners on the targeted list, Duale says he  and parliament is ready to negotiate cuts on their salaries.

" It is important that as leaders we are able to look for ways to reduce public spending and recurrent expenditure, he said Monday in Nairobi.

But with parliament particularly notorious for refusing to take salary cuts in the past and fighting for increases, some have questioned the national assembly's ability to take the cuts.

Duale though says that the house will not be left behind in the process.

" We are here to serve the people and if the people are best served in this way we have no choice but to follow suit, he added.
